the macallan 1926 valerio adami


The Macallan, the benchmark of malt whiskies across the world, is arguably the most sought after and collectible of Scotch whiskies.

The Macallan is revered for their Scotch whisky heritage and recognised worldwide for their premium and uncompromising examples of the finest Scotch malt whisky available. Their premium nature is reflected in their devoted following of brand advocates, with every release of The Macallan more and more sought after amongst whisky aficionados and collectors. 

Their limited edition and vintage collections regularly achieve high prices at auctions, such as their Masters of Photography, Archival Folio and Exceptional Single Cask series’ for example. We of course couldn't get away without mentioning their collaboration with French crystal maker, Lalique, which has propelled Macallan to unreachable heights through their masterful trilogy of minute production, remarkably mature scotch malt and exquisite decanters.

In addition to their collections, The Macallan also release individual limited edition bottlings such as The Macallan Genesis, The Macallan 50 Year Old and The Macallan 52 Year Old as well as their Gran Reserva bottlings, Anniversary Malts and their Fine and Rare collection which make regular appearances in our monthly whisky auctions.

There are exceptional casks from Macallan, and then there is cask #263. Given the pervasiveness with which that phrase is now used in relation to the distillery's output, it is difficult at first to find the correct superlative for this European oak cask, filled nearly 100 years ago. Perfect?
